Larkton Ltd, a digital transformation, software design, and corrosion and materials engineering consultancy, has launched Larkton CM corrosion rate estimation and materials selection software.
To achieve a new standard in corrosion analysis and materials selection, carbon dioxide and hydrogen sulphide corrosion models and experimental data have been reanalysed, and industry experience and inspection information have been reviewed. The development team also revisited the business processes and needs of corrosion and materials engineers in this new industrial era focusing on efficiency and productivity improvement.
“The opportunity to rethink corrosion analysis and materials selection has been fantastic,” says Liane Smith, Larkton Director. “We were unburdened by legacy methodologies and able to embrace the opportunities provided by cloud-computing with end-to-end encryption technologies for security. This means we can give customers secure access to corrosion rate estimates and materials selection wherever they are while retaining data and outputs within their systems.”
Larkton CM software gives consistent outputs when tested against legacy corrosion models using the same limited inputs. However, it also offers the option of inputting more detailed data for deeper analysis and greater accuracy. Materials selection options are provided for a wide range of the components used in facilities, pipelines and wells to give a comprehensive output, including material choices for downhole equipment.
